  1. Remove parallel cursor function

    If you have two graphs in one view: when you set a cursor in one graph, the same cursor is set automatically in the other graph. When you move one cursor, the cursor is also moved in the other graph – please remove this “parallel” function. We need to analyse graphs separately.

  2. Editing of the graphs (Cursor and morge functionalities)

    Editing of the graphs: you can’t delete a cursor except if you completely close and reopen the view. The graph is not as easily editable as in PI Processbook.
    Also the zoom functions are more easy to use in PI Processbook.

  3. PIVision search mask vs Processbook search mask

    1) Search mask: please do a search mask very similar to PI Processbook. The PI Vision search mask is very limited. Even if you search for tag descriptions, you only see the tag names without the tag descriptions.
    Have a close look on how well this works in PI Datalink and PI Processbook.

  4. When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:"

    When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:". Currently a paste of such a copy results in only the first cell contents in the tags list. It would be great to copy multiple tag names and paste into the "Tags in Plot:" and get all of the tags added to the trend.

  6. Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files.

    Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files. Currently the Process Book Files are getting unique IDs and those IDs are part of the URL (e.g. https://ip address/PIVision/PB/#/PBDisplays/88)
    The problem is for example we change something on the files, it happens that the Display is getting a new ID. (Newer Version of the Same Display, new ID…)
    For the end-user its annoying when the URL is changing. He has then to update the Favorites, or is confused (or even think the display was removed). Best option would be to provide also an URL with the Filename…

  7. Imported Processbook ad-hoc trends should have x-axis

    When you create an Ad-hoc trend from a Processbook display, there needs to be axis labels to show start and end times to help if graphical interpretation.

    The behavior is inconsistent with ad-hoc trends created from native Vision displays

  10. Can we get more development on Processbook "Make Processbook great again"

    processbook looks like it is out of the late 90's and early 2000's.  Can we get some updates on this.  I know you are pushing PI Vision but some people don't want to use a web based software to do this with.  Because Processbook is so outdated in functionality and look my company has been looking at PARCview as a replacement.  This is because it is more intuitive and user friendly.  I do not want go through the process of changing to PARCview and would prefer a major update to Processbook.  Things like drag/drop from one display to another, modify…

  12. Have ProcessBook and Coresight exhibit same behavior for imported ProcessBook Displays

    In an imported ProcessBook display, I would like to see the same behavior in Coresight and in ProcessBook regarding changing the time context. In short, we want the value displayed to be based on the End Time of the display. We see this in ProcessBook, but not in Coresight.

    Let’s say we have a ProcessBook PDI file that has a trend with a default span of 7 days. This PDI is viewed both in ProcessBook and via Coresight.
     
    On that trend we have pi tags that are getting updated frequently. Above the trend we text that displays the address…

  13. Allow scrollbars on Coresight Processbook displays

    When viewing large displays in Processbook the user can use scrollbars to navigate around the display whilst zoomed in so that the symbols remain legible.

    When these displays are imported into Coresight there are no scrollbars which make it very difficult to navigate the display.

    Scrollbar functionality should be implemented in Coresight processbook displays so that the same user experience is shared in both formats.

  15. Allow configuration of default AF identity ProcessBook displays are shared with

    By default, PI ProcessBook displays in PI Coresight are shared with the AF identity "World". Allow the default identity PI ProcessBook displays are shared with to be configurable so that it can be set to one or more identities.

  16. Provide Switch Asset Navigation Button for ProcessBook

    Support the Switch Asset Navigation Button for switching contexts on imported ProcessBook displays.

    I am aware of the url parameter workaround but would be very nice to also have the switch asset for interactive switching.

  17. Upload ProcessBook display file to Coresight

    The current mechanism to add ProcessBook displays is to copy them to a shared drive. Unfortunately our IT like many (I actually agree with them) don't particularly like opening firewalls for the Windows file share.
    An easy solution would be to provide an upload option via Coresight. An authorised user would be able to save the PDI file to the display location via a page/dialog on Coresight. This would reduce some of the friction. The upload could also do some basic check like only allow pdi files.
